I am new here and have a couple of questions. I am considering a Archos Arnova 8 G2 501834 Tablet PC 1.00GHz 7" 4GB Flash Memory for my wife for Christmas.
1. It comes with Gingerbread. Is it rootable?
Yes, but so far only with Custom Rom...
2. Honeycomb update (root or otherwise) available?
No, may be somebody will make CM9 with ICS for it...
3. She needs a tablet for entertainment only. E-books, movies, Angy birds etc. Will this unit fit the bill?
Yes, for sure.
I have an ASUS Transformer TF101 I use for work and the wife doesnt want anything that powerful. I am hoping this one does what she needs. Thanks in advance.
RK2918 is one of the most powerfull Cortex A8 processors, so you both should be very happy.
